Hyatt has entered into an agreement with A&B Group for the Nam Nghi Phu Quoc Island to join The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand by early 2019, making it the first Southeast Asian hotel in the collection.
The Unbound Collection as Hyatt describes it is “a collection of hotels and experiences inspiring the freedom to be extraordinary” and existing ones include the likes of Jinmao Hotel Lijiang in China which nestles in a picturesque UNESCO World Heritage site, against the majestic Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.
Half of Phu Quoc island is within the confines of the national park and UNESCO World Heritage-designated, Kien Giang Biosphere Reserve – one of the largest biosphere reserves in Southeast Asia. This 114-room resort will be the largest island in Vietnam circled by pristine white sand beaches spreading across 150 kilometres of coastline.
With a boom in local tourism, improvements in flight connectivity and new low-cost carriers coming to Vietnam, hospitality groups wish to leave no stone unturned to gain a slice of this ripe tourism market.
“A destination resort where guests will be able to create one-of-a-kind memories”
David Udell, group president, Asia-Pacific, Hyatt Hotels Corporation, said: “We are pleased to introduce The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand to Southeast Asia with Nam Nghi Phu Quoc Island, a destination resort where guests will be able to create one-of-a-kind memories and stories amid awe-inspiring, natural surroundings. We are grateful to celebrate the continued relationship with A&B Group and excited to expand Hyatt’s resort offerings in Vietnam together following our collaboration on the Hyatt Regency Nha Trang, which is expected to open in 2019.”
“The refreshed Nam Nghi Phu Quoc Island will provide local and international guests with exceptional experiences set amid a pristine ecosystem and private sanctuary,” said Ha Van An, chairman, A&B Group. “We are delighted to work with Hyatt and are confident that its international hospitality expertise will enable us to elevate the guest experience at our resort.”
Nam Nghi Phu Quoc Island will feature 51 villas and 63 guest rooms, four dining outlets, meeting spaces, a swimming pool, kids club, and spa and fitness centre. With an exceptional location and a picturesque view of the turquoise waters, the resort will be an ideal place for destination weddings and vacation getaways for couples and families.
